Are vaginas shaped the way they are so you can slide a credit card through them?

You know it took him hours to think of that one. Also, it seems someone needs a closer look at a vagina.

    So that’s where all the weird charges on my statement are coming from….

  • sgzax

    And are penises shaped the way they are so I can use them to hold pencils?

  • inFlagrante

    No, no, no… Vagina’s aren’t shaped to be credit card readers, vulva’s are. Geez, some people.

  • UltraMagnus

    Well, we know he’s 1) being totally flip and assholish and 2) either doesn’t believe or doesn’t understand evolution;).
    Also, does that mean that the asshole is shaped for those Mobil speed passes?

    actually i am pretty sure ass hats like that need to stay far far away from vaginas.

  • Allytude

    … no actually vaginas are out doing wonderful things…

    No, but your butt crack is. Does it take Diners Club?

  • exelizabeth

    Do you know what a common thread seems to be with all this hate mail?
    None of these men have ever actually gotten laid.
    Gee, I wonder why.

    No, but your butt crack is.

    Nelly did this in his “Tip Drill” music video. For serious. Much outrage followed.
    P.S.: I would have included a link but I couldn’t bring myself to actually watch the video.

    I never would have known!

    How unfortunate, another dick that knows shit about the female body. I hope he uses Real Dolls instead.

  • Webbess

    I can’t believe evolutionary biologists haven’t considered this.
    Someone notify the Nobel Prize committee.

    Spoken like a man who’s never seen a real vagina since he came out of his momma’s.

  • Webbess

    ^ That post was made in sarcasm. For some bizarre reason the tags I wrote disappeared.

    Penises are obviously bestowed with erection powers to hold up towels.

  • Liza

    Ouch.
    Clearly he hasn’t been near a vagina in some time. If he continues to act like that, he’ll probably never go near one again.

  • Peepers

    Urethra…vagina…asshat?

  • nerdalert

    Why do woman-haters think that vaginas are like Swiss Army knives?
    It can whittle, open wine bottles, clean your teeth, magnify text, and file your nails in one sitting.

  • BeezNeez

    I wouldn’t believe someone could be that dumb, except I’ve seen plenty of “erotic drawings” by 15-year-old boys that shows women standing upright, legs together, pushing something in through the FRONT of the vulva. Because … as we all know … the vagina runs parallel to one’s belly-button.
    I’ve seen dozens and dozens of these … there are obviously a LOT of confused people out there–more so than this guy.
    Now I’m imagining him running his credit card through a woman’s vagina … and being unable to fish it back out. That would be … so … pointy. Ouch.

  • Andrea

    anomrabbit: This guy I used to date (and have since completely cut out of my life for many reasons) showed me the extended uncut video for “Tip Drill” just to see what I would think about it (???? as if he couldn’t guess). Of course, he was a misogynist piece of shit and was only showing it to me because he didn’t know how else to express his growing resentment at my ability to be self-confident and clever while simulaneously possessing a vagina. It’s the only thing I’ve ever seen that made me both cry AND throw up.

    Vaginas are shaped that way so that really tiny penises can’t injure them.

  • Shira

    More than once I’ve had conversations with “pro-life” men who believed, among other things, that A)Women pee out their vaginas and B)Women get “loose” from having too much sex because of ‘erosion.’ Christ on a cracker, just because we call pubic hair a bush doesn’t mean the thing it covers is a freaking hillside.
    In my experience, the less a man knows about female anatomy, the more likely he is to want to control it.

  • dananddanica

    Actually I bet you’d be amazed at how much people who send those kinds of emails know about the general appearance of female genitalia.
    If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that credit card comment after friends or co-workers come back from a “gentlemans” club I could retire. Sadly though that is usually the extent of their knowledge.

    Hi Jessica,
    Can we have a weekly anti-feminist hate mail bag? This is too funny to just do once!

  • http://aikenareaprogressive.blogspot.com Jovan1984

    Well, AnnaSoror, I have something called Asshole of the Week and Asshole of the Month. (here are the most recent Assholes of the Week)
    On Christmas Day, I will name the 106 Biggest Assholes of the year.

    Next time you post a vagina diagram, hows about using one that actually labels the clit? It’s kind of important. Please and thank you.

women's soccer plays

Male viewer writes letter to the editor explaining why women can’t play soccer

This weekend, England’s women’s soccer team played Germany in an historic match at Wembly national stadium. As the Independent reports, “It was the first standalone game for women at the home of football, drew a record crowd of 46,000, was shown live in TV coverage on the BBC, and introduced a generation of young girls to the idea of the women’s team being treated the same as the men for the first time.” 

After the game, one male viewer, David Hickey, wrote a letter to the editor asking why it was aired when women’s soccer clearly doesn’t compare to the men’s game. “Women can’t play football,” he wrote. “They don’t even know the basic rules.” Here’s his full message:

Speaking of the use of personal characteristics: GamerGate lore now holds that any woman with dyed hair is an attention-seeker to be feared and mistrusted.

Scrutiny: Some thoughts about thick skin

“Grow a thicker skin”: this admonition is given to pretty much anyone that spends even a micron of their time in the public eye of Sauron. It’s been on my mind a lot lately due to the GamerGate business that’s wracked the video game world of late. As a result of that groundswell, I was subjected to a slew of truly awful harassment and bigotry, hands down the worst in both volume and cruelty that I’d seen in my career. Just the other night I was derided as “the post-op tranny” by some random Twitterer– and that’s one of the nicer comments I’ve received.

But is this so unusual? And is it really unique to women? ...
